2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200 NTX


The 2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio, introduced in 2008, is a touring bike that was in need of a revamp, and it got it. This is the third version of the Stelvio, and it appears as if Moto Guzzi finally got it right. This model year receives updates to improve fuel capacity, weather protection, and styling.

The new Stelvio comes in the 1200 NTX ABS model and is named after the famous Alpine pass that connects Valtelline Valley to Vinschgau Valley with 84 amazing s-bends between them. The Guzzi design team has streamlined the Stelvio by rounding off the fuel tank and integrating it with the lightweight half-fairing. The new half-fairing improves wind protection and flows seamlessly into the twin headlight assembly. The latter feature is a distinctive element of the Stelvio design, and the only detail inherited from the previous version. The front fairing, windscreen, and the half-fairing with integrated turn signals are all brand new elements that together give the front-end of the Stelvio a cutting-edge look. This change also allowed the fuel tank to increase to 8.5 gallons, which is a big improvement on earlier models.

This touring bike uses the V-shaped 90 degree transverse twin-cylinder, four-valve engine. The brand new integrated ignition now exploits the signals sent by the two lambda probes to guarantee adequate feeding throughout the entire combustion cycle, improving response to the throttle control, low-to-mid-range power delivery further to consumptions and emissions. It also includes the Aprilia traction control system (ATC) to prevent sliding. ATC works by controlling ignition advance and injection to cut torque delivery whenever a sudden loss of grip is detected so as to help the rider to remain in control under extreme, unexpected conditions. The system can be deactivated, just like Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS). The engine now boasts a maximum torque of over 83 lb-ft delivered at 5800 rpm and reaches a peak 105 horsepower at 7250 rpm.

The NTX also features more protection for the motor and the rider. Aluminum crash bars protect the oil sump, engine, and cylinder heads. While hand-guards and the extra large windshield with additional wind deflectors offer more protection and comfort for the rider.

New For 2012
  • Redesigned combination of half-fairing and fuel tank, which retains the twin headlamps but increases wind protection as well as almost doubling fuel capacity to 8.5 gallons.
  • Orange ""Sienna Earth"" paintwork introduced as an alternative to the more restrained white or black paint.
  • Revised exhaust system with twin lambda probes that give it a more accurate fueling than the old model's simpler, single-probe setup, which should result in improved fuel consumption and more accurate throttle response.
  • Air-cooled, high-cam V-twin had its valve lifters and oil pump gears redesigned to reduce noise.
  • Adds Aprilia Traction Control (ATC).
  • Peak torque is up to 83 lb-ft at 5800 rpm.
